Full use of electronic mail throughout the world requires that people
be able to use their own names, written correctly in their own
languages and scripts, as mailbox names in email addresses.  This
document introduces a series of specifications that define mechanisms
and protocol extensions needed to fully support internationalized
email addresses.  These changes include an SMTP extension and
extension of email header syntax to accommodate UTF-8 data.  The
document set also includes discussion of key assumptions and issues
in deploying fully internationalized email.  This memo provides 
information for the Internet community.


This document is a product of the Email Address Internationalization
Working Group of the IETF.
